I use my camera strap to DIY for my uke.
Now my uke become a "mkii lele":p:p:p

The story is when i tidy my room last night, i found a unused camera strap. as u all know, using this strap to carry a around 1.5KG camera(with lens) is not a nice experience(especially in summer:eek:).
so I change one with cushion and store this original one somewhere in my room...
Once I found it last night I start my DIY~
really it fits and comfortable,
And start playing on my uke for hours~~~really nice

I like this one off of Amazon prime for $20. But they are easy to make.

Cool idea Frankie, why didn't I think of that instead of purchasing 2 straps for 60 bucks.

Yeah mate, I think it looks great. How did you attach the back, if you don't mind me asking?

How did you modify/attach it?

I use the original strap and a rope~
one side (top) just like what you do on your camera,
another side, use the rope walk around the belly(or i should say waist seems my uke don't have a belly~;)) and make a knot.
After that, use your camera strap connect the rope~
then ~the next step is~~enjoy your uke~~~~ :p:p:p

How does it hang? I have a mandolin strap on one of my ukes attached at the headstock but don't care for how it hangs.

Lori's Uke Leash is my favourite strap.

you must really like photography as that's a nice camera. Great idea for a DIY strap
